Hans Ulrich Obrist’s Questionnaire: Precious Okoyomon
For this new series, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist has devised a set of thirty-seven questions that invite artists, authors, musicians, and other visionaries to address key elements of their lives and creative practices. Respondents are invited to make a selection from the larger questionnaire and to reply in as many or as few words as they desire. Additionally, they are invited to provide an additional question of their choosing that will be added to the list for future participants. For the inaugural installment, we are honored to present the artist and poet Precious Okoyomon.
